Response to HSG not hysterscopy
when I did it I took 2-3 tylenol about an hour before I left for the clinic. They'd also given me a prescription for 1 valium, which I took about 30 minutes before I got to the clinic (I had a ride to and from). By the time they were doing the procedure the valium was wearing off, so I was QUITE uncomfortable. I thought it hurt, and I hated that they had my cervix clamped open the entire time, it hurt!
But, you've done this before. I would definately take the tylenol about an hour before the procedure. I wish they had you doing a hysteroscopy, b/c the HSG doesn't show as much. With the hysteroscopy, it's more intense (I was under general anesthesia for it, which was an additional $500 but I didn't care!), and they can really go in there and look around better.
Best of luck to you! I'm sure you've already covered this: but did your husband get a fertility work-up as well to be sure his sperm is okay? Again, I'm sure you've done this long ago, but just in case.
